“All institutions in the National Education System are now advised that the implementation of auto suspension will be done on the 1st of March, 2017, while the actual auto suspension will take effect on Pay No. 6, pay date 17th March, 2017,” said the Secretary. 

He said the payroll division has received copies of RODSS from NCD, Central and West Sepik provinces. 

Stop using ‘standard officer’ title, advises Kombra

The Secretary for Education, Dr Uke Kombra is issuing the advice according to the Secretary’s Instruction No. 12 of 2016.

“The title ‘school inspector’ was used in the past until it was changed to ‘standard officer’ when the Standards Division of the Department, formerly known as Inspections and Guidance Division, was going through an inspection review process in 2016,” Dr Kombra said in a statement.

“This review saw a shift in inspectors’ work from teacher appraisal to whole school improvement and accountability.”
